i read this book when i was a kid and so much of it has stuck with me in really funny ways. it was the first time i'd ever heard of those crackers that you pull and they explode and stuff comes out. and the first time that i'd ever heard of a roto-rooter.

the epic of barbie and ken is the best part. i want to read the whole thing.
Didn't actually find this until a few years after I'd read Me and Katie the Pest, yet it's actually the prequel, not a sequel as I first imagined. Sara was a bit wet, I liked M&KTP better.

This was the first Ann M Martin book that I ever read back in 1985 and it really brings that summer when I was ten back to me. :) This is a really cute story about a painfully shy girl who is forced to act in her class's school play.
